Today is the 443rd founding anniversary of the province of Cebu.  Today is the 443rd year since King Phillip II of Spain signed a royal decree declaring Miguel Lopez de Legaspi as Cebu’s first Governor and Captain General.  The province has lined up several activities, specifically showcasing and highlighting the province of Cebu.

Last weekend, my cousin, my boyfriend and I, went to the CICC to check out the exhibits there.  I was expecting a lot of food but the food booths required us to pay P50 as entrance fee, and we did not want to spend any money, so decided to check out the booths at the second floor. And, boy, I was in a trance with all the accessories for sale (prices started at P10). I always think it is a good buy if (i) the price is affordable, (ii) the quality is good, and (iii) the products are local or handmade.

For P102, I was able to buy a necklace (P50), a pair of earrings (P10), pintos (P12), malunggay bread (P5) and a loaf of kamote bread (P25).  All local products, all good.

The exhibit will run until Aug. 13, and I’m thinking of going back for more.
